I) Death Avoidance Dance
I can sense your dark presence,
whether I go East or West.
Where can I hide from you?
How can I flee from Thanatos?
Don’t follow me like a shadow.
Don’t haunt me like a hungry ghost.
Let me eat, drink & have a good time,
Until you finally catch up with me.
II) Dancing with Death
I have known you for a long time
and you have waited for me patiently.
Now, I am ready for your embrace
without fear and hesitation.
I have fought a good fight, and
I have offered my life a living sacrifice,
Gone are my struggles & suffering,
I am ready to meet my Maker.
Take my hand for the last dance,
till I hear the sweet sound welcoming me home.
III) Death Acceptance Dance
I can feel the chill when you come near
but I am no longer scared.
Looking deep into your hollow eyes,
I can see that you really care.
Yes, I can hear the tiktok song,
keenly aware of the march of time,
but I will make every day count,
to be the best I was meant to be.
